    I have had a few interviews for apprenticeships recently and I've found a lot of conflicting opinions about pay for people who have completed a previous apprenticeship. Half seem to think that you need to be with a certain employer for a year to qualify for NMW and the other half think that it's an aggregate, so if you finish a 12 month apprenticeship and then go do an apprenticeship with someone else you would get full NMW.

    My problem is that I recently finished an apprenticeship (12 months) and wasn't hired on afterwords for a number of reasons. However, I previously finished a 6 month apprenticeship before that and I have no idea if I should have qualified for NMW half way through my most recent one.

    It's more annoying that I'm possibly looking for another Advanced apprenticeship and some employers/training providers outright refuse because they don't want to pay me a full wage, which I may or may not get.

    Can someone tell me definitively whether I've been ripped off out of around £3000 for my last apprenticeship or not? At least if I haven't I have a better chance at getting another one.
